Apps target family fun events

Posted: Updated:

Looking for something fun to do this weekend for the family? Wondering what special events are happening near you? Check out A Days Outing.com. It's a free website and a $2.99 iphone app that lets you type in a location or zipcode and, it returns a list of location specific happenings in your vicinity.

You can choose from various categories, from special events to museums to parks to special sports and outdoor activities. And you can narrow that search by distance from your present location. It sets from 10 to 120 miles, and you can refine it further by when you're looking for something to do right now, next weekend, or a specific date.

Another service, Eventbrite, promises much the same thing, though, it's probably more tilted towards music, conferences, and business networking. Eventbrite also has an iphone app, but it's totally free.
